In the beginning of Sept 2010 I got a Silkie roo, knowing that my roo would need company, I then by the end of Aug 2011 had 9 hen for him. Silkie-boy loves his harem. Having watched all my chicken grow into beautiful birds and see how they interact with me and themselves it has been interesting. Well 3 weeks ago they started laying eggs! But.......I am going to start to do chicken math, 7 x7 = 49 eggs in 1 week! WHAT WAS I THINKING!!! And I still want more chickens!!!! Even my hubby wants to expand and may explore exotic chickens for fly-tying small home business. I love my chickens, they make me smile and laugh if I am feeling down. They can be work, but I enjoy going out into the coop and cleaning it out for them. Smelling all the fresh pine shaving brings back good memories of life on the old farm when I was a kid! Now seriously people I don't know enough people to even give my eggs away!!! What can I do with them all!!! HELP!!!! I think that either I will have to become a souffle, quiche expert very soon. Or pickle eggs anybody???? Well I should go now as I need to go and boil up a dozen or so egg and make you guessed it deviled eggs!!
